The Driving Test in Ullapool

The driving test from Ullapool Driving Test Centre will feature a significant amount of rural, country road and village driving. The examiner from Ullapool Driving Test Centre will request a single test manoeuvre (the turn in the road and left corner reverse being the most common) and a good chance of the emergency stop procedure at around 1-in-3 possibility.

The test will last from 30 to 40 minutes and include independent driving. Knowing each and every test route isn’t essential, though gaining an understanding of the particularly difficult areas of the test routes often proves beneficial.

Examiners who conduct the tests develop the test routes for their test centres with the intention of taking the test candidate through as many varied road types and traffic systems as possible, within the time given.
This is to ensure test candidates can deal with all situations and often involves difficult areas. Driving test routes may be available to view or a downloadable app for your mobile device in your area, including Ullapool Driving Test Centre.


Many test centres conduct practical tests from Monday to Friday, though some in rural areas may provide tests on a part-time basis only. Whilst making your test booking, the available times and dates will be displayed. You will be asked for information from your theory test pass certificate and provisional driving licence when booking.

Rescheduling or cancelling the driving test

Practical driving test pass rates vary from centre to centre. This can often be due to the location, often busier areas having a slightly lower pass rate. Driving tests can be taken at any UK test centre. Choosing an area that you feel more confident in may benefit. The driving test pass rates section may show driving test pass rate statistics for your practical test centre.


For driving test booking and test amendments such as rescheduling or cancelling, please only contact the DVSA as above. Test centre staff may be contacted directly if you have a question that directly relates to your test – examples may include an issue with your test vehicle (see cars for the driving test), or if a test is still going ahead due to bad weather (see driving tests in bad weather for further information).
